Property Valuation Services
The Department provides valuation advice to the Collector of Stamp Revenue (who is also the Commissioner of Inland Revenue) by examining transactions involving the transfer of property. The aim is to protect revenue from this source. Where the stated consideration is considered inadequate, the Department will provide a valuation for that purpose.
Valuations will also be provided in cases where property is transferred with no consideration paid.
For more information, please refer to the “Property Valuation for Stamp Duty Purpose” leaflet (pdf).
